the version of unity in natty is very different from the one available in ubuntu-10.10. unity in natty is a re-write

So maybe I should wait for Natty?
What is the Quick Way to upgrade to alpha or Beta of Natty from 10.10?

if you want to upgrade to natty id say to use a cd or something to install using one of the daily builds which can be found at http://cdimage.ubuntu.com/daily-live/current/ ....but if you want to do an upgrade process then you can press Alt+F2 and type in "update-manager -d" without quotes....but as a warning using the update manager can cause some problems which is why i would use a cd or something to install it, also because its alpha1 its not recommended for everyday use
